COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a full hazed orange. Creamy foam. Thick swabs of poofy lace. Nose is fresh orange juice and zesty pink grapefruit. Taste is sharp, spicy, oily, quite bitter. Feels heavier than APA. More IPA. Very nice.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pint on tap at The Olde Depot. The aroma is very pleasant with sweet, floral, and citrus notes. Fairly quaffable. Mildly hazy golden/orange body with a medium egg white head and good lacing. This beer starts with a nice, moderate, malt sweetness. Becomes rather citrus-like after, with heavy emphasis on orange and grapefruit hop flavors. Finishes quite bitter. A nice American Pale Ale...

Draft- hops are assertive but the aftertaste is more citrus than bitter. A nice light body pale ale that is more sessionable than an IPA.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Bang on pale ale enjoyed at the Tap Room. Light golden colour, lacey,easy smooth mouthfeel. Citrus orange bitterness. Good drinkability. No astringency at well. This apparently will become their main pale ale. Above average bodied and medium hoppiness.
